What uSwitch say about the price change
Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch Ann Robinson said of the price drop:
“It looked as though the gas bill reductions were slowly becoming more generous, but it’s disappointing that SSE has not reduced its prices further or sooner.
“Is EDF Energy going to be the one who does the right thing and announce a price cut that properly reflects the fall in wholesale prices? Energy companies need to take greater steps forward to help ease the pressure on homes trying to make ends meet – rather than simply pointing their toes in the right direction.”
What should I do about the SSE price change?
Only SSE customers currently on their standard, dual fuel plans will see a price cut — a difference of £28 per year on average. If you are on this plan you could be overpaying by hundreds, even with the price change.
